A Torrington man was killed in a crash on Route 118 in Harwinton on Wednesday afternoon.
Police said 50-year-old Louis Auger was driving a Chevrolet Corvette east on Litchfield Road when the car crossed oncoming traffic and crashed into a dirt embankment.
Auger was pronounced dead at the scene.
A passenger suffered minor injuries and was flown to Hartford Hospital via LIFE STAR.
Crews shut down the road at about 4:30 p.m. but it has since reopened.
It is unclear why the car crossed the double yellow lines at this time.
